Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Suffolk Law - Visit Review
« on: March 07, 2008, 01:20:18 AM »
Suffolk is a great place, I love their campus.

I do not understand why everyone bad mouths schools that are not the top 4 in Boston. Everyone always trashes Suffolk and NESL as not being able to get you a job. The way most of you come off sounding is a really big billboard that says DO NOT GO THERE, even if that is not what you said. It is the ridiculous wording used to describe prospects for Boston schools, not just in this thread, but predominantly in other threads. 

Coming out of those two schools, if you graduate in the top 1/2 of your class, you'll get a job. Not 80-125k coming out of school, but that is reserved for the t-14 schools. NESL is a good school, and not everyone is going to law school for Money.

Many people on the board always trash tier 4 schools and tier 3 schools, and i am really sick of it. Not because I will most likely be going to one but, the belief that unless you are going to a t100 school you cannot be a good lawyer is the way a lot of these threads come off sounding. We must as a group try to change these negative connotations associated with tier 3 and tier 4 schools not named Cooley or FCSL, I really don't find them helpful to anyone who asks questions.

This is so obviously fake.

True, but it does do a pretty good job of mocking our obsession with minute rankings flucuations.

Apparently this is already posted somewhere, though.  Must have missed that.


A lot of you are too obsessed with the ranking system. It's not the be all, end all decision making tool for jobs.

Being a 3rd year at NESL… I would say it depends… If you are looking to do well 1st year and are looking to transfer up, I would say go to NESL.  If you are content with Suffolk then I say go that direction.  Staying local within Massachusetts both NESL and Suffolk have comparable reputations but Suffolk has a greater alumni base to make connections and thereby increasing job prospects.  Hope that helps!

Good Information. Too many of you people on this board are always trashing schools, but with very little evidence to back it up. Just because a school is a tier 4 does not mean it is necessarily a bad school with bad job prospects. FCSL, yeah maybe. Cooley, OK. But, the way people trash schools on here, because they are not in the top 100 or t-14 even, immediately  and destroy them for absolutely no reason.

"Oh _____ is a tier 4, dont go!"

"Oh _____ is a tier 3, so it must be better than a tier 4!"

Many of you are delusional and think people are just going to school to make $$. Money is not everything.

why are people trolling for their schools?  ::) study and stop being lame.

My file was complete in mid January.  I am a 160/3.7, with solid soft factors (sorry for the pun).  Wisconsin says their average is 161/3.4.  What do you think?

Depends on the personal statement and how many seats they have left.


Complete at 5/9

Were you all able to talk?

Go to webmd.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: California Western
« on: March 05, 2008, 09:39:50 PM »
i have a friend at CA Western who affirms this is more or less true.  She is top 10% and has a decent clerkship lined up post-graduation. She was there on full tuition scholarship though, I would seriously reconsider if you are not there on full tuition.

I have not applied, I was just asking, trying to find out some background information.

I plan to work my ass off in law school, so the whole top 1/3rd of your class at some institutions to transfer to other schools does not scare me. The LSAT scared me, haha, I'm better at actual school.

Thanks for the info guys/gals.

As a USD 2L i would advise you strongly to go to USD if you want to work in SD, and Loyola if you plan on working in LA and dont get into UCLA or USC. Transferring is very difficult, we all expect to be in the top 1/3, but you will have very smart colleagues and 2/3 of your class will be very disappointed. If your grades and lsat arent that good, I would consider USD PT and then transferring to day. Once you are at cal western, the chances of transferring to USD are not as great as already being there PT and transferring your second year.

True. The way I'm looking at it, if its meant to be, it'll be. I'm just going to ride out this cycle.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: this sucks..Yale vs. NYU full ride
« on: March 04, 2008, 11:59:21 PM »

rofls quietly in corner

im probably going to end up with a 3.55 as well. how difficult would it be to get into Hastings?

have any of you heard of the LSAC GPA/LSAT Search tool on www.lsac.org?

It's not like it was linked in the 4th post in the thread or anything to make it easy.  lol

who said anything about prospective law students knowing how to read though?

Riddle me that.

FYI all... I got waitlisted at BC and that just won't do, so I'm taking my name off the WL.

Sorry Cosmo. They're absolute unpredictable nut-jobs up there,

Thanks, way to insult everyone who they accepted. 

It's okay people say things like that in anger.  My husband said "How dare they?!  Who do they think they are?!" and continued to berate them and wish upon their football team 100 years of bad luck lol. 

lulz, I wished ill upon Colt Brennan's legs when UT dinged me. Your husband sounds like a good man.

This just shows the sports knowledge of a law school student.

Colt Brennan played for Hawaii dippy. :) Colt McCoy plays for Texas

Cosmo - Sorry about BC, I'm sure your husband will be able to make friends down in DC and will be able to manage for 10 weeks.

Have fun down at GW, I'm still waiting to hear back from anyone. I just went complete at 4 of 9. haha, LSAT Feb Scores. Hopefully, the weeks will go quick and painless.


I withdrew at NESL and Suffolk today so hopefully they give you my spot :)

That would be great!!! :) I'll thank ya!
